Overview

This loop links together two short suburban trails (Black Sage and Golf View) that weave in and out of the residential area surrounding the Aviara Oaks Middle School. Overall, the loop is about 50/50 trail and paved road.

Runner Notes

The surface is hard packed sand/dirt that can be slippery on the descents.

Description

Traveling clockwise, the trail has quick turns and short climbs until you hit Aviara Parkway. Then dig in for a long climb before you dive back into the dirt trail. Parking is at the Aviara Community Park which adds about 0.25 miles to the listed mileage.

Trailhead: Exit the I-5 in Carlsbad at Poinsettia. Head east for about 2 miles. Turn left on Ambrosia and follow into the parking area.

Flora & Fauna

Most of the trail is surrounded by the typical coastal SoCal scrub forest. Watch out for snakes.

The terrain is much more gnarly than the elevation profile would lead you to believe.
